Not all college degrees are equal

The latest attempt to destroy excellence is a proposal to remove the name of the school from which a person holds a degree (“In the name of ‘equity,’ companies are now ignoring educational achievement,” New York Post, Dec. 31).  The rationale is that marquee-name colleges and universities have long discriminated against Blacks and Hispanics.

But prestigious schools are prestigious because in so many cases they offer a leg up to degree holders.  As a result, let them stand as an incentive to work harder to gain admission.
